Glass top turned black

The Glass Top on the JBP78 turned Black. Recommended cleaning agents won't remove Black. It looks like it has inbed itself into the glass.

Separating a glass tv pedestal from a glass tv cabinet

I can only figure that the cabinet is Not part of the TV's normal design and it has been just sitting on this cabinet for a long while?
If this is so then it has by weight and heat sweated itself onto the top, synthetic feet are made of complex materials including oils which get exuded then form a quite powerful glue action, also that spray polish has baulking agents to make it look good in use these act as glue.

If this top is glass then its pretty well resistent to most things, try windolene glass spray its safe and dissolves many things on glass as a cleaner (or other surfaces). Move up to say WD40 a mineral oil again safe wipe clean with meths spirit to clean up just add in a bit of tilting to break that grip.

Hope this helps......

Cleaning your inside scanner glass

Actually it's a very simple procedure!

Read this entire comment first...then start your procedures!

Disconnect the power cord, disconnect the USB cable, remove the top cover cable from the base by unscrewing the two plastic knobs, lift the top cover straight up. Place the top cover in a safe place.

On a clean, flat surface, turn the base upside down. On both ends you will find a total of four (4) black phillips head screws. Carefully unscrew these four screws and place aside. Carefully lift up the base and the top glass will separate from the base. Set the base aside. You have now exposed the inside glass for cleaning! It's that simple!!! Clean the glass by using a streak-free glass cleaner. Don't spray the glass, rather, lightly spray a clean soft lint free glass cleaning cloth, then wipe the glass. Don't press hard! Use good common sense1 There, you've now cleaned the interior glass. Reverse the procedure and you are finished. Wasn't that simple??

My stove's glass top has turned black - is there any way to fix this without buying a new one?

There is a cleaning powder specifically for these stoves that will remove any burnt on stuff, but that will only remove material from the surface of the glass. If the glass itself has discolored (I don't see how) then it will have to be replaced.

Horizontal streak

Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the small strip of glass that is just to the left of the large main glass. This is the only cause for black line (s) when copying using the ADF(top feed). If prints or copies fine from the glass then it is this strip glass needing to be cleaned.

Copies fade in and out horizontally

One of 2 things likely...It could be as simple as your toner cartridge. Do you have another to try?? Otherwise it should be an optics problem. I've only worked on a couple of these, so i can't remember exactly, but basically you want to get the top scanner glass out. I think you have to remove one of the end panels, and perhaps the top back panel. should be fairly obvious when looking at it, the glass, should slide out the end (power should be "OFF" by the way), slide the scanner to the right and clean the mirrors, and bulb, and then clean the glass. replace and check.
Hope this helps.

Burner on glass stove top has turned black

The nice grey-flecked surface coating is very thin; the solid black is underneath. You've "cleaned" the coating off -- that's why further scrubbing just makes it worse. We did the same thing :-(

Scanner FailureTurn power off then on again Message Window pops up continuously

Turning on and off or doing the re-set thing didn't work for me.

The solution that worked for me: Removing the black bulb cover and cleaning the mirrors.

Open the hinged lid, lift up and out and set aside. This will expose two small screws in back that holds the glass cover on. Remove the two screws. I used a small allen wrench. Carefully lift the gray glass cover up in back and pry loose in front, one corner at the time. Flip the cover over to the right and carefully set aside, keeping it at the same height as the top of the printer. Do not let the ribbon come out. Also, the little screws will fall out so don't lose them. Once you have exposed the inside, the key to everything is to carefully remove the black bulb/mirror cover on top and LEAVE OFF. There are two small slots on top to allow you to do this, or simply pry off from the side. Once removed, clean the mirrors with a q-tip and go ahead and clean the underside of the glass top while you have it off. Flip the glass top back over making sure the ribbon stays in (you may need to feed it back in a little). Snap the glass top back on, front to back, and replace screws. You should be good to go! I sure hope this helps whomever, because this is a great little printer/copier that I almost tossed.

"Clean Glass" message

So far I've been unable to find how to disable the message but I know it can be done. Until I find how to disable message I would recommend this- there is a white piece of mylar located underneith the top frame that the scanner uses to get a white level reading during warm up. The glass must be removed in order for you to access the white mylar. Remove the glass & look underneith on the left hand side- you should see the mylar stuck to the top of the frame. You may need to slide the scanner to the right to give yourself enough room to clean it. Obviously do this with the machine off & unplugged. If you want to send me your email address I'll send you the disable instructions as soon as I find them. Please put 3045 clean glass in subject line in case it gets dumped into my junk email.My email is [email protected]
